Zavia, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zavia
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Black Velvet Chinchilla
Home: Mississauga, Ontario, Canada
   This is Zavia, she is a Black Velvet chinchilla. Zavia travelled by plane to come to my house and was very tired from her journey. She settled in very fast and it didn't take long before I fell totally in love with her and her antics.

    Zavia is quite the acrobatic chinchilla. She zooms around her cage and leaps from ledge to ledge and then runs non stop on her wheel. The only time she is not really moving is when she is sleeping. She even eats perched either on her wheel or on her food dish. I laugh all the time because she is a goof ball.

    Everyday I get kisses from her. She runs over to the cage door when I say walk into the chin room. She is always looking for attention.

    Her favorite treat is rose hips and also a pinch of oats. She loves when I give her fresh hay at night and picks through it to find the best pieces. She doesn't have a favorite place to sleep but her favorite item is her flying saucer chinchilla wheel. She learned how to use it in less than a day and her best trick is that she runs really fast and then leaps off the wheel watches it spin and then jumps back onto it.
